;.^r^zf College 1Bew8 Vol. 10. No. 5 WELLESLEY, MASS., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1910 Price 5 Cents The College Settlement Chapter. Again the College Settlement Chapter would fain press her hospitality on all new stu- dents of t lie college, and on all old students who have not yet accepted it. What lias she to offer, in comparison with other organiza- tions at Wellesley? Very little, in one way. No charming clubhouse, where friendships can be fostered, programs presented, merry little suppers enjoyed. No opportunity for missionary or Bible study, scant opportuni- ties for active work. Little in the way of honors, dignities, or fun. Why join it. then? There is only the old answer — old, yet always new. Join it be- cause in doing so you prove that you recog- nize in the American college a stronghold of democracy; and while vou share its happy privileges, are not unmindful of the throngs of the less privileged, in tenement and fac- tory. You should not enter the delight of fellowship, which is one of the best gifts that Wellesley has to offer, without trying, ■ugh your representatives, to extend that fellowship to those so near and yet so far away. You want our radiant Wellesley, so bright with earnest thinking and eager living, to reach out through your gifts and prayers and service, present and future, and to shed illumination and warmth in regions where the light shines faintly. You, to whom America is giving of her best, want to help the college of your love to bear her part in the inter- collegiate movement for sharing that best so far as may be with the newcomers of every race who press upon our shores. Shall we tell again the old story? An In- tercollegiate Association, chaptered in all the chief women's colleges, is governed through "Electors" appointed by these chapters; officers whose duties are not only to maintain the association in the colleges, but to control the large interests involved in the work of the association. The College Settlement Asso- ciation supports fellows in the settlement centers. It controls three houses: The Col- lege Settlements in New York and Philadel- phia, Denison House "in Boston. Of the work of these houses, — the representative and nobly-sustained social service of college women, — there is no room to speak. Their thousands of frequenters from the working classes, their clubs, classes, sewing-schools, dispensaries, their lecture-courses, vacation schools, summer camps and country homes, their carnivals, dances, debates, attempts at political education and propaganda, their fellowship with all movements for industrial justice, especially among women, — are not these things all described in that little-read tint inspiring document, the Annual Report? What Wellesley girl can read the record without a thrill of pride to think that these splendid centers of wise fervor ami sane activity are inspired and maintained by the women's colleges, her own among the first? But they can't be maintained unless sin- joins the chapter. Ami if she joins it, a strange and happy thing happens to her. For I was wrong in saying that the College Settlement Asso ciation offered no clubhouse. It possesses none, indeed, built of bricks and mortar, pre- senting picturesque Elizabethan gables or classic porticoes. None the less, a lovely and stately house is shared by the members of tile chapter. Their common home is a great idea, — the Service of the People. And be- lieve me, an idea, if it be true and great, is the most permanent and altogether satis- factory abiding-place one is ever likely to find. Vida D. Scudder. THE STUDENTS' BUILDING. There is one subject which the solicitor for many can broach to even the haughtiest upper classman without a qualm or blush— for the interest and enthusiasm of all go without saying. Every loyal member of Wellesley would do her utmost for the Students' Building, and, therefore, the com- .iiiitee is mi! uiuhig an appeal, it is trust- ing to the cause itself, for its own appeal. But it wishes to set before the college a statement of what has been done already, to make the Students' Building gradually evolve from a hazy ideal to a reality of the near future. In the first place, the alumna? are taking up the work, and co-operating with us. The value of what they arc doing cannot be over- estimated. They have an efficient com- mittee, of which Miss Mary Holmes, 1892, is chairman, and Miss Alice Brown, 1908, secretary. They arc making all sorts of plans for raising money in the coming year. Since the first Student Committee was formed in December, 1908, $12,135.93 has been raised by alumnae gifts, student pledges, a fair, and various entertainments. Plans for this year depend for their success on the loyal support of the college. Especially is the committee looking toward 1914 for active expression of their interest. The youngest class in college is the one which will have the longest influence, if it grows up, as it were, in the hope of a Students' Building. The committee for the year is as follows; Constance Eustis, 191 1, ex-Officio. Mary Warren, 191 1. Alice Ake, 191 1. Dorothy Applegate, 1912, Chairman. Abby Brooks, 1912, Treasurer. Dorothy Ridgway, 1913. The First Barnswallow Play. If a splendid beginning is significant, the Barnswallows have much toward which to look forward in the way of dramatic enter- tainments during the present college year. Tlie applause and hearty enjoyment of the crowds who thronged the barn on Saturday flight, Octobei twenty-ninth, testified to the unusual success of this first play of tin season. In presenting Mr. Shaw's" "Vou Never Can Tell," with what might be termed an all- star cast, the organization ha something a littli ibitious than the usual first Barnswallow play. We commend I lie ambition, for we believe in good begin- nings. Mr. Shaw' atirical faro is too well known to need any comment here. Whether we consider the jort ol literature, which starts with one problem am! ends, if possible, with a worse one particularly uplifting or not, is, after all, a personal matter; and, at any 1 we derived 8 gn at deal of entertainment from "Von Never Can Tell," it being alwa\ un to see something which is well written, especially if it is as well acted as the play in question was last Saturday night. That Katharine Parsons had done some very excellent work in coaching the play was clearly evidi nt by the results; the action was smooth, the parts, without exception, in- telligently and interpretatively given. As Mrs. Clanelon, the author of the. "Twentieth Century Treatises," ami the champion of modern womanhood, Florence Talpcv showed a great deal of ability ami professional polish, both in interpretation and in actual presenta- tion. Margery Mackillop's Gloria, "the woman of the twentieth century," "Learn- ing's daughter," "Beauty's paragon," was a trifle colorless, but nevertheless very attract- i\ e. Mary Colt's presentation of the self- Lmpiarjtant young man, Philip Clandon, was easy, clever and amusing. The buoyant and irrepressible Dolly was given by Imogene Kelly with great dash and humor and charm- ing spontaneity. Elinor Vliet, as Valentine, gave some very finished and graceful work. As the irascible and much-abused father, Mr. Crampton, Kathcrinc Dufficld was excellent, throwing herself into the part with a great deal of appreciation. Helen Scinson, as the solicitor, was also exceedingly good, and afforded the audience a numbei of good laughs, as did also Meta Bennett, who was very delightful in the part of the nervous and obsequious William. The pompous Mr. Bohun was very pompously and amusingly given by Mary Hewett. Augusta Rahr and Ida Appenzeller were respectively a very good maid and butler, keeping properly in the background. A very' large share of the credit for the success of the performance is due to the committee, with Alberta Peltz as chairman. The cast and committee are as follows: The Cast.

There is a popular idea among outsiders that Wellesley is becoming self-conscious and analytical, fond of dissecting all her motives and ideals, to view them in the light of modern social thought. "I cannot under- stand you girls," was a remark made to the Editor during the summer; "you are not hap- py unless you are making yourselves misera- ble, in your struggles for general welfare; you wear yourselves out as well as everyone around you, because you are so conscientious- ly thinking of your neighbor." It is doubtful whether this statement could be applied in general to the Wellesley students, yet the spirit of reform has, without doubt, become a feature of college life during the last two years. It seizes us spasmodically, individ- ually or collectively, upon any pretext at all; there have been large things, and small things, important and unimportant. The question is, whether it is a whim of the mo- ment, caught from the greater world outside our miniature one, making us, as some think, self-conscious and one-sided, or whether it is a wholesome attitude, a sane striving for a more ideal, more perfect, college. One thing is certain.

Mondays and Thursdays 2-5 more deadly for Wellesley than perfect self- satisfaction. If we saw only our virtues, not our faults, we should soon degenerate into a hopelessly uninteresting, stupid community. On the other hand, rabid reformists are not pleasant to live with; they wear upon the nerves and exhaust the patience of all their friends. It is the old cry against extremes, yet it seems justifiable, with regard to college life. We must, of all things, be sane, well- balanced, able to see both sides of a question. The writer is not trying to discuss the so- ciety question, although she must admit that it, of all things, shows the active tendency toward reform. It has focused the attention of outsiders upon the college, led many of them to study us from afar, and pronounce us over-conscientious and morbidly analyt- ical. The point of view of these "outsiders," however, is not one to carry weight; they can judge only from a superficial standpoint, not being vitally connected with Wellesley, or wholly interested in her life and aims. Their lives are outside, in a very different sphere, and they cannot see how, to us, college life is all-absorbing, to the exclusion, perhaps, of larger interests. For that very reason we are no more capable of judging ourselves, our standards, and our tendencies, than are they. While they lack the sympathy, we lack the perspective requisite. We are so wrapped up in the interests of living, we are so swayed by the influences about us, by the ideas of now one strong personality, now another, that we cannot see college as a whole. This indi- vidual opinion, as to how the reform move- ment, in its different phases, has affected us, how it has influenced us, changed our ideas, changed the ideas of our friends, may be of value, but it cannot be taken as typical of the college as a whole.

The Faculty, especially while living in close contact with us, have yet the broader outlook and perspective necessary for clear judgment. Those alum- na? who live near enough to take an active interest in college life may also be depended upon for a more accurate understanding than ours. After all, the thing that vitally concerns us, as students, is not what people think about us, nor even so much what we are, but what we ought to be. If we each have our personal ideal, and work for it in the sanest way, with the perfection of the whole in mind, even if the ideals differ, the college will be benefited. Untold good can be done for a community by the wholesome attitude of even a few of its members; an attitude which looks at things fairly, clearly; an attitude which is uninfluenced by the trend of public opinion, but which shows individual thought.

At the Christian Association meeting on October twenty- seventh, in College Hall Chapel, the new members recommended by the Board of Directors were formally received into membership. Dorothy Mills, who led the meeting, explained some of the phrases of the pledge and the constitution for the benefit of thes new members. Many people have interpreted the words, "I prom- ise to give my life to the service of God," as meaning "I promise to become a missionary." Of course, everyone cannot be a mission- ary, but by heart}' support of the Christian Association and loyalty to friends, in college, and Christian living out of it, the promise may be truly kept. These few words of explanation must surelv have given a better understanding to everyone of the teal work of Christian Association in college life. NOTICES The college will have a rare opportunity next Sunday evening to hear very directly from its own missionary, Dr. Ruth Hume, through her father, the Rev. Robert A. Hume, who will speak at the vesper service. We are doubly fortunate in that this report of our work in India is 1 nought to us by one of the world's gieat missionaries, one whose practical wisdom and breadth of view h tve b -n strongly influential in the development of Christian education in India.

Those members of the college who have contributed to the support of Aunt Dinah Pace's orphanage will be interested in the following extract from a letter recently received by Mr. Dana. "I am glad to say that we have had a very good summer in regard to sickness. There has been no fever in the Home this year, which is fine for a house of fifty-four children and as many as eleven sleeping in one room. I worked hard, kept the place clean, and every little while gave each child oil and turpentine and the dear Lord did the rest and blessed the home with health. "I could not get all my store accounts cleared last year as I was ill the last part of my trip and in order to keep in bread for the family was compelled to give a mortgage on our home. I mean this lot in town where we now occupy. And now that note of more than six hundred dollars is due. It is paying-up time on our year's expenses and I am much worried, for I do want to sell this town place, but hate to sell it for such a small price, for it is worth at least $2,500. A house and lot on a more back street than this sold for $4,000, last week. It belonged to a white man, but the house was no larger or better than ours. If I am compelled to sell to get up this money to lift the mortgage I shall have to take much less than if I could have it free and then sell. I ask your aid in this matter. "The crops are a perfect failure this year and I can't even earn the money I have earned at this season of the year working out for others. Bureau of Academic Costume COTRELL & LEONARD ALBANY, N. Y.

In view of the unusual need the Christian Association has this year appropriated two hundred dollars for Aunt Dinah's work.

In the "Popular Science Monthly" for November, an article on "The Relations between Teachers and Pupils," by Principal H. A. Miers, is of peculiar interest. The paper was read this year before the Educational Science section of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, in Sheffield. The paper considers, first, the general relation between teachers and pupils, and secondly, the desirable and necessary change in the method of teaching when the school training is exchanged for that of the university. The author establishes the facts that at the university as at the school, the personal influence of the teacher upon the learner is of chief importance; that, at the university, as at the school, success in teaching depends upon the interest aroused in the pupil; further, that in younger pupils this interest is intellectual matters is to be awakened by novelty, by attractive- ness, while with the mature mind this is only to be done by providing the student with a purpose and responsibility in his work. The business of direct mental training should then be finished at school, while at the university the trained mind should be given ma- terial upon which to do responsible work in the spirit of inquiry. Mr. Miers' views are of interest, not only to those of us who intend to become teachers, but to us all in the formation of our ideal student life. The November "Century" has a delicate sketch by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps on "Stories that Stay." The writer gives several brief and vivid impressions of short stories that have remained with her, and then summarizes tersely the qualities in which the power of the stories has lain. These elements of permanence are originality, humanity, force and finish. Literary quality, says the writer, will sustain these elements, but without them no story can live. "A Discovery Concerning Marcus Aurelius," by Arthur L. Frothingham, some time professor of Archaeology and Ancient His- tory in Princeton University, tells of the identification of the Em- peror Marcus Aurelius' sarcophagus in the Vatican. The tomb has been known as the "tomb of the Mother of Constantine," but Professor Frothingham established the fact that, on account of its workmanship and subject, its date must be somewhere from 170- 190 A. D., almost a century and a half before the time of the Chris- tian Empress. From the zodiac sign of "Leo" on the cover, and from the importance in which astrology was held at the time of the tomb's construction, Professor Frothingham concludes that the time must have belonged to either the Emperor Marcus Aurelius or Claudius Gothicus.

IN THE MAGAZINES-Continued. him to his final conclusion, that the sarcophagus belongs to the royal philosopher, still dear to many modern readers, Marcus Aurelius. In the November "Atlantic," an article by John Husband, electrical engineer in Minneapolis, called "A Year in a Coal Mine," gives a true account of the writer's personal experiences of two years ago, in a typical coal mine of the Middle West. Mr. Husband ob- tained work as a day laborer in the mine with no intention of ever writing of his experiences, and he gives, in a singularly vivid picture, of the difficulty, the horror, the interest of a mining life. He tells of the wonderful machinery and high scientific excellence of the work- ing of the mine; of the manifold old-world superstition found in it; of the character, the aims, and the struggles of the immigrant miners. "Negro Suffrage in a Democracy," by Ray Stannard Baker, considers the problem of negro suffrage in its legal and practical aspects. Legally, Mr. Baker says, the principle of the political equality of the two races is not infringed upon. Practically, there is almost no negro vote in the South. This is due to two causes: First, many negroes (as well as poor whites) disenfranchise them- selves through ignorance or inability or unwillingness to pay the taxes. Second, the intimidation of negroes by white men at the polls prevents any negro, however well qualified, from voting. The remedy of this situation Mr. Baker finds in the extension of free education and intercourse among the people of both races, since ignorance and prejudice are the underlying causes of the evil. If the two races meet on such points of contact as business, land ownership, common material pursuits, there will result, says Mr. Baker, an ever finer and finer spirit of association which will in- evitably lead to the extension of the soundest possible basis of negro franchise. For Mr. Baker has "boundless confidence in the sense of the white man, as well as in the innate capability of the negro." "Scribncr's Magazine" for November has an article on "The Arctic Prairies," by Ernest Thompson Scton, vivid and thoughtful. Sue Ainshe Clark and Edith Wyatt have collected a budget of dramatic and sometimes tragic, life-stories of girls who took part in the shirt-waist strike in New York last winter. It is called " The Working-girls' Budget," and appears in "McClure's" for November. SOCIAL STUDY CIRCLE.

Lombard 22 to 26 Merchants Row, - BOSTON, MASS. FREE PRESS. I. In reply to a Free Press in the recent number of the News on the attitude of "the others" toward 1914, I should like to offer my opinion. So far I have not observed any attitude on the part of anyone in Wellesley which 1914 could possibly tescnt. I have not been conscious of any undue emphasis upon the unwholesome, unnatural emotionalism of the Freshmen. If a girl squeals too loudly during an exciting game of Ring-around-a-rosy, there is no r^usi m why she shouldn't be stopped. I have thought that we were treated as nearly like rational human beings as possible. So far I have found nothing but kindness and consideration toward the class of 1914 as a whole and toward the individuals. We have not only been shown courtesy by every- one with whom we have come in contact, but have been cordially welcomed as necessary members of the big student body. Many of the upper classmen who would undoubtedly have preferred to do something else, have taken their time to help us teel happy and at home and to teach us the ropes. And I, for one, should like to express my grateful appreciation of the fact. Charlotte M. Coxover, 1914. II. Although we are reminded day by day in divers and sundry ways of the utter selfishness of humanity, we can not but be en- couraged on this point in observing the attitude of our Faculty toward us. Wholly disinterested and hoping for no reward except our benefit and progress, our various instructors endeavor in a th( msand different ways not only to help us derive all possible good En mi their own courses but also to help us come to a fuller realization of all the many other benefits of Wellesley. An adequate example of this thoughtful, untiring generosity toward us is the attitude of Miss Jackson toward the students in the course English Composition o. Having access to many of the old books mentioned in "Romola," which novel the course is now taking up, she undertook the laborious task of copying down all the classical references, of looking them up, and of placing these books where students can easily find them. We are thus enabled to get a more vivid picture of the setting of the novel under study, a truer idea of the spirit of the times and an added interest in the whole work. We cannot thank Miss Jackson ade- quately for the pleasure she has given us or for her splendid example of disinterested generosity. Ought not this quality so constantly witnessed in the attitude of our Faculty be an inspiration and a source of optimism to us? 1912. III. Nineteen fourteen, we have been latch- called upon by one of our number to do more than "mutely resent this attitude that meets us at College." If we have anything to resent, in what way, please, are we to express our resentment, if not mutely? By scratch- ing and hair-pulling? But surely that would betray "hysterical, nervous creatures, lacking self-control and level heads," ami thereby our own end would be defeated, for we would be found guilty of the charge. However, it seems that all the Freshmen who have any- thing to resent, (and this number is greatly in the minority, v.

Perkins & Sons, Proprietors, Iff.» h fo e u g% happy to say), have expressed their displeasure in plain, emphatic English. But, 1914, what do we find in this attitude that we ought to resent so sttenuoush ? It is quite true that we have been wained against hysteria and emotionalisrr . All of us aren't guilty of it, but some of us are. So let those whom the cap fits wear it, please, and say nothing that will give the Faculty and upper classmen a false idea of our attitude toward them. We have found kindness, good- will and even self-saciifice in their attitude toward us, and in our first month here we have truly been "ministered unto." We are deepful grateful for it, aren't we? And our spirit is not going to be less noble than theirs, is it, 1914? 1914- IV. Of the possessions which Wellesley cherishes it would ^-em that the College Charter ought to be among the first. Does it not then seem a pity that when other priceless treasuri moved to prominent points in the Library it should have been left hanging in an obseure corner of the College Hall dining-room next t kitchen door? Are there not a number of places in the Library where it might be displayed to advantage and also be in less danger of being destroyed by fire? C. H. P. ALUMNAE NOTES. In addition to notes concerning graduates, the Alumnae column will contain items of interest about members of the Faculty, past and present, and former students. At services held in Chickering Hall ber 27, in memory of Dr. William J. Rolfe, the Shakespearean edit one ot the speakers was Professor Katharine Lee Bates, of the Eng- lish Literature Department. In a recent Boston Herald there was in interesting letter on the origin of "Hangar," by Professor Angie Clara Chapin, of the Creek Department. Miss Chapin takes the word from the Creek, to which Dr. Alfred Hennequin had traced it, back further yet as a loan-word from the Persian. Miss Taylor, ot the English Department, formerly of the Bryn Mawr English Department, attended the recent anniversary at Bryn Mawr College as a delegate from Radcliffe. Miss Faung Y. Tsao, 1907-1909, recently visited Wellesley. Miss Tsao expects to take a d< $ ■■ < tmbia next year and after that return as a teacher to China.

COLLEGE NEWS Women's and Misses' Coats Of Jordan Marsh Company Style and Quality Buying the new coat here is insurance in itself against dissatisfaction. It means the advantage of immense stocks — the largest in New England. It means choosing where every coat is a new 1910-191 1 model that measures up to this store's well- known standard of goodness. It means getting absolutely the best value your outlay can command.
